Mobile Apps for Real Estate Agencies

Mobile apps for RealitorsRealitors all over Seattle are starting to use mobile apps to build their business and having great success.

Mobile apps are being downloaded by the tens of thousands each day and are growing more popular as more and more people upgrade their cell phones to smart phones. More than 50% of mobile phones are now smart phones and consumers are eagerly downloading iPhone apps and Android apps from small businesses to inform, entertain or serve a function.

Mobile app development is one of the best ways for a realtor to differentiate themselves from the crowd. Whether you offer a “find your dream home” app or a “how to sell a property” your phone app, the best mobile apps are those that appeal to your target customer and promote your business either directly or indirectly.

Working with app developers, you can brainstorm and idea that will both appeal to your target consumer and be affordable to develop. Once you have a concept, it’s easy from there to dive into your idea with both iPhone apps and Android apps. Since both markets are growing rapidly, developing across both platforms will appeal to the widest range of customers.

Entertain – people love using game apps to fill downtime and game apps can tie back to your real estate business directly or even indirectly.

Solve a Problem – people love apps that solve problems or fill a need in their life – for instance mobile flashlights and mobile measuring tapes are popular tools in apps form

Function – people dislike apps that freeze, malfunction or don’t run properly on their mobile device – so make sure your app developers are skilled
